I (w,27) have a hypo thyroid function for many years now and always took levothyroxine 125.
Now I had a blood test done with my new GP (I moved to another city) and he said that I need to reduce the strength that I took for so many years.
I'm now a bit confused and sceptical, as I know that many GPs don't know enough about it.
Here are the results he gave me:
fT4: 25.9 (12 - 22)
fT3: 5.4 (3.1 - 6.8)
TSH: 0.01 (0.3 - 4.2)
Note: Approx. one year ago I stopped taking the oral contraceptive pill. Apparently that can affect it. Now I do have some symptoms like feeling very cold, feeling tired, low mood, sadness..
1) Are the figures in brackets the normals figures? Are they correct?
2) Is the GP correct that I should reduce the strength of the hormones?
Thanks a lot for your help everyone,
